Lindsay Lohan’s appeal for her lawsuit against Take-Two Interactive was dismissed by the court in a recent court ruling. Her original lawsuit, first dismissed back in 2016, alleged that the studio Rock Star Games used her likeness without her consent for one of the game’s characters in Grand Theft Auto. 

The New York State court of appeals unanimously voted that the game did not explicitly reference her and that the depictions were “nothing more than a cultural comment.” The character in question, Lacy Jones, depicted an average woman in her twenty’s and is not assuming Lohan’s likeness in any way said, Judge Eugene Fahey. 

“We conclude that the amended complaint was properly dismissed because the artistic renderings are indistinct, satirical representations of the style, look, and persona of a modern, beach-going young woman that are not reasonably identifiable as plaintiff, “Fahey said the court’s decision.

Lohan’s suit was not the only one claiming similar allegations that the game assumed their likeness. Mob Wives star Karen Gravano also sued the studio for same reasons, but the case was also thrown out of court in a separate ruling.
